I’m struggling a lot with being overwhelmed today. Between running a business, running a household and trying to blog, I often find myself buried in a very long To Do list and a very long (and full of longing) Want To Do list.
I honestly don’t believe in that thing called “balance”. I don’t think achieving balance is possible. I think life tends to be more of a see saw. Some days we are weighed down in work, others in household responsibilities and on a very few rare occasions (at least for me) we feel light and lifted and are able to have some fun.
Today I am weighed down. I’m a people pleaser so I often take on too much (like right now) and spend my days wishing I could tackle the things I want to do, rather than the things I have to do.
Instead, I will finish this blog post, grab my To Do list and hopefully dig in with resolve and get out from under the weight of my responsibilities.
Maybe, just maybe, that means this weekend I’ll be able to do a few of the things I want to do. I hope you get that opportunity too.

I have been feeling like this a lot lately. I feel your pain.
